- How did you feel when coming to me/a coach and/or what made you decide it was time?
My wife introduced me to you and made the arrangements for a meeting. I didn't think I needed a life coach to be honest. But, the more I speak to Marion...I get motivated and feel better about myself. I always beat myself up emotionally. Marion teaches me to put the bad aside and focus on the good (both in terms of physical and mental health).
I decided that I had to make a change. Everything I was doing to try to help myself was not working. I could not do it alone as I am sure everyone else eventually realizes. Marion has lived the life and has experienced the same issues I am having which makes the connection real and strong and her advice believable.
- After talking to me, how did you decide it was right for you? What was the primary reason you made the decision to say yes?
Again, I had to make a change. Marion is not a stiff, rigid doctor-type. She is a fun, easy-going REAL person. Her issues are my issues. Her schedule to meet with me was very accomodating and that really made me feel good and worked for me considering my busy days.
- How do you feel different now/already?
I have lost quite a bit of weight over the span of just under 2 months I have been speaking with Marion. My outlook on life is better, I eat better than I have in a long time and I exercise regularly. I am more aware of my surroundings instead of living life in a fog. My relationship with my wife has improved and my future goals are more real and apparent then they ever have been.
- What changes do you see that you'd love to share.
The fact that I have lost weight and see that my clothes are looser makes me feel great! It is nice too to hear someone who is confident and proud of my progress and gives me the motivation to keep going on my journey towards success. That voice was missing for a long time.
- From your experience, how do you suggest others decide if they are ready to talk to a coach?
Think about what you have been doing in the past and what you are doing now to change your life for the better. Is it working? You can't do it on your own....it is difficult. Even working with Marion for a couple of months has changed my life for the better in so many ways. Motivation and perseverance go a long way to reaching your goals. Marion can give you those tools to make a U-turn in life and start on a path of success.
- Is it what you expected, more than or less than?
It is more than I expected. Results were apparent within days and short terms goals were being attained in weeks. Small steps and achieving short term goals will help with the ultimate goals that were tough to achieve on my own.
- What can I do to make it an even better experience for you, if anything?
Nothing! Your periodic, inspirational emails are so helpful!
- Is there anything you'd prefer I didn't do?
